- Our mission
- Hub for the gospel
The Evangelical Church Breccia di Roma exists to glorify God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, living the Gospel of Jesus Christ as a community of disciples and serving kingly, priestly and prophetically the city of Rome (and through it the nation of Italy) so that the Word of God may have a breakthrough to transform it.
The final goal is … the glory of God
The propelling centre is … the gospel of Jesus Christ
The community envisaged is … a church of disciples
The scopes of action are …
- … A kingly service to encourage responsibility
- … A priestly service to bless the neighbour and the city
- … A prophetic service to proclaim the Word of God
The ‘glocal’ borders are … the city of Rome and Italy
The final hope is … the transformation of the city according to the Gospel
Breccia (English: breach) is used in the Bible (especially the OT) to indicate the opening of a door in a city fortress. We pray that God will be pleased to open a significant door in this needy town, allowing the gospel to go forth (Colossians 4:2-4). It also evokes the event in Italian history (20th September 1870) when the Italian army made a “breach” in the city walls (governed at the time by the pope) and reduced the pontifical state to its present-day dimensions. We pray that God will be pleased to use the church to confront the powers of the city with the claims of the gospel.
